- Avoid “bikeshedding”: stop wasting valuable time on trivia
- Don’t hurt yourself by writing code that will cause problems later
- Know which legacy features to avoid and the modern features to use instead
- Use newer features properly, to get their benefits without creating new problems
- Default to higher-quality code that’s statically type-safe, leak resistant, and easier to evolve
- Use the Core Guidelines with any modern C++ version: C++20, C++17, C++14, or C++11
Throughout, Davidson and Gregory offer useful conceptual insights and expert sample code, illuminate proven ways to use both new and longstanding language features more successfully, and show how to write programs that are more robust and performant by default.
Beautiful C++: 30 Core Guidelines for Writing Clean, Safe, and Fast Code presents the C++ Core Guidelines from a developer’s point of view with an emphasis on what benefits can be obtained from following the rules and what nightmares can result from ignoring them. For true geeks, it is an easy and entertaining read. For most software developers, it offers something new and useful.
There’s something here to improve virtually every program you write, design, or maintain.
